Allegri – Juve split could end up in court

It was widely expecting that at the end of the season, which is due to happen next week, Juventus and Massimiliano Allegri will part way by ‘mutual consent’ even thou the highest paid coach in all Italy has a contract until 2025. But after his latest incident on the Coppa Italia final, it seems that not only the ‘mutual consent’ part will not happen but on the contrary – the already former coach could send his former club to the court. According to the latest reports from Italy, that is a strong possibility which will be known in the next five days.Juve handed the papers to Mad Max! The beginning of Thiago Motta’s era?After he allegedly verbally attacked the Tuttosport editor-in chief, Juventus fired Allegri two days after the Coppa Italia final with Atalanta (Juve won 1-0). La Gazzetta Dello Sport reports that Juventus consider themselves negatively impacted and that they have been evaluating the possibility of dismissal for just cause. CEO Maurizio Scanavino presented the case to Allegri through the club’s lawyers and he now has five days to respond. Juventus formally complained to Allegri about all the excesses he made at the finals: the drama with the referees, the damage to Lapresse’s photographic set, the quarrel with the director of Tuttosport Guido Vaciago, the shouting at the Telecontrol men and the double failure of respect towards director Cristiano Giuntoli (first the attempt to remove him during the awards ceremony, then the argument in front of witnesses as they returned to the hotel). With all these in mind, Juventus clearly concluded that such a behavior “does not allow the continuation of the employment relationship” and was a violation of the principle of sporting loyalty (provided for both by the Juventus Code of Ethics and by article 4 of the Sports Justice Code).’Shi**y director! I’ll come and bite your ears off!’So, Juve conclude that they don’t have to pay Allegri his salary after sacking him as his actions were damaging their image. But, with a mammoth 7 million-per-year wage salary, it remains a possibility that the coach will decide to bring his former employees to court and ask for his money. Allegri himself was surprised with the sacking, especially since he apologized to the director of Tuttosport. He is now in a unique situation as he is the only coach in 127 year history of Juventus to be dismissed for bad conduct. If he decided to appeal, he could eventually win the case and get his seven million euros plus potential compensation for damages to reputation. Until then, Paolo Montero will be interim manager for the two remaining games.SERIE A – MATCHDAY 37FridayFiorentina – Napoli 2-2 (2-1)/Biraghi 40, Nzola 42 – Rrahmani 8, Kvaratskhelia 57/SaturdayLecce – Atalanta 0-2 (0-0)/De Ketelaere 48, Scamacca 53/Torino – AC Milan 3-1 (2-0)/Zapata 26, Ilic 40, Rodriguez 46 – Bennacer 55 pen/SundaySassuolo – Cagliari 0-2 (0-0)/Prati 71, Lapadula 90+1/16:00: (3.05) Monza (3.45) Frosinone (2.30)16:00: (2.10) Udinese (3.45) Empoli (3.90)19:00: (1.67) Inter (3.90) Lazio (5.90)21:45: (1.52) Roma (4.20) Genoa (7.50)Monday19:30: (5.10) Salernitana (3.60) Verona (1.73)21:45: (2.60) Bologna (3.15) Juventus (3.10)***odds are subject to change***
